What we've lost: Reflecting on a year of COVID-19

Teacora Sherrill no longer sees the pandemic in terms of numbers.

It’s hard to escape them - the number of hospitalizations, the number of cases in your state, the over-500,000 virus-caused deaths in America. They’re in television reports, headlines and daily conversations.

As they grow and shrink, people have used them as a way of measuring our failures and successes as a nation.

But for Sherrill, it’s impossible not to see her Aunt Renae Byrd, who passed from COVID-19 in September, in each digit.

Belmont's Asian American Association to hold vigil, discussion roundtable in light of Atlanta shooting

Belmont’s faculty and students will come together to pause for prayer, mourn lost life and rebuke racism.

To support grieving students given the recent Atlanta shooting, when Asian businesses were targeted and eight AAPI women were killed, Belmont’s Asian American Association will host a Zoom vigil Wednesday afternoon, as well as co-sponsor a discussion panel Thursday.

“I want fellow students to see that Asian Americans are really going through it right now,” said Michelle Dong, junior general business major and AAA president. “We are real people with real emotions, not some monolith or ‘other’ beings who have been thought of as quiet, passive, and insignificant.”

From Belmont Vision: “Sodexo employees Belmont University Starbucks and Burrito Bowl appear to have walked off the job Tues… later Starbucks reopened with employees not in typical uniform... a professor said walkout likely due to low wages & long hours…”
From part two of the Belmont Vision series: "Sherri McKinney, regional director of communications for the Red Cross of Tennessee, could often be found behind the wheel of one of them, driving cautiously around chunks of asphalt thrown up at odd angles like moon rocks. These are the more serviceable roads in town; in some places, still, the street simply up and disappears under mud and rubble. 'The repercussions,' said McKinney, 'are deeper than just water.'” https://rdcrss.org/2WSYrvd
